Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul may have found a new main squeeze, as he was caught holding hands with Australian model Casey Boonstra earlier this November.

The two were seen together during the Flat Earth International Conference in Denver, Colorado, on November 16, as revealed by a SnapChat reposted by Paul, himself.

The Snap in question featured a picture of the two holding hands, wearing matching shirts that read, ‘The Earth,’ with an image of a flat earth just beneath the text. The SnapChat was originally taken by Maverick member Mike ‘Hey Big Mike’ Majlak, who captioned the image, “Happy to see like-minded individuals connect.”

Boonstra even posted an image of Paul’s Pomeranian ‘Kong da Savage’ to her personal SnapChat story, as well, further proving her involvement with the YouTuber.

While both Paul and Boonstra have yet to make a public statement confirming their relationship, Paul’s speech at the Conference was met with ample criticism – and has even been speculated to be part of a massive prank.

Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem suggested that Paul could have been pulling a stunt to get more views, as his previous vlog had only reached just over one million eyes at the time of the incident.

Paul’s latest romantic escapade follows his breakup with Agents of Shield star Chloe Bennet by a month, who was confirmed to have split with Paul in a mutual breakup in early October. However, it looks like both he and brother Jake Paul are ready to move on, as sources close to Jake revealed that the YouTuber is likewise looking to settle down.

Twitch’s new stream “Boost” feature raises concern for smaller channels

Twitch is rolling out a new feature for eligible channels called “Boost this stream,” with the hopes of giving people an avenue to be featured on “highly visible parts” of the platform. However, there are concerns it’ll be damaging for the smaller streams trying to get noticed.

The new Community Challenge requires viewers to pool their Channel Points to unlock the reward. Streamers will get notified once the challenge is available on their channel, then will relay that to their community to start chipping away at the progress bar.

But there are concerns about its application. It’ll be on Twitch’s discretion for who gets to run the promotion as well as the target number to hit before a channel can be successfully Boosted.

The only hard number guideline with ‘Boost this stream’ is the 2,000 point limit that each user can contribute per day. Since individual streamers don’t know what their Boost target will be, some suggest this will be an easy feature to exploit.

“How is not going to be abused by larger streams with more viewers, and therefore a bigger pool?” one person wrote. “IMO channel points devoted for use with a Community Challenge should be weighted in value depending on viewership.”

Twitch responded saying “the amount of Channel Points required to successfully boost a stream is scaled with the size and viewership of the channel,” though a clear metric of how the cap increases wasn’t made available.

Another issue raised was the way Twitch would consider someone to be a ‘small streamer,’ seeing as they’ll be the likely candidates to receive the chance to get Boosted.

If it’s going by viewer count, then small streamers can be anything from 2-10 average viewers to 100-2000 live watchers per session. If it’s going by follower count or subscriber count, then that has its own implications as well.

But Boost is a wholly experimental feature that has a lot of variables still being workshopped. For example, in the FAQ, Twitch says that everything from what’s considered as a high visibility part of the site to who the feature is available as it rolls out could change.

As the company gets this feature into more users’ hands, expect Twitch to make adjustments depending on how Boost gets received throughout December.
